Question about Sony VAIO PCV-V100G (PCVV100GKIT1) PC Desktop
My computer crashed and hasn't recovered. When I power it up, it fails to post. A long beep that repeats itself is all that I?m left with. Things I've done to diagnose: Removed RAM Replaced Ram with New Tested Ram (passed) Removed and reseated Video Card Pressed all visible chips Changed power supply Thanx
Try disconnecting power to all your drives. It's possible one of the drives has a short that is bringing down the power supply (most power supplies will shut down if they sense a short, to avoid damaging your computer). If it's not that, it's either a bad video card (reseating obviously won't help if the card's damaged) or a bad motherboard or processor. If you have another machine you can borrow a video card out of, you can test that. Otherwise, you'll have to replace the motherboard and processor. Never replace just one of the two, as one can damage the other and it's not worth frying your new equipment by putting damaged hardware in.

if your computer wont boot and is not giving the post noise
one bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps
